By the time we got home to our hotel at 5:30 p.m. we had already logged over 20,000 steps. We were tempted to stay home, but we would have missed the highlight of our entire trip if we had.
During the break we met some of the men, who were so welcoming and fun. The last song they sang was a tribute to us, who came all the way from America to see them. It was a beautiful arrangement of Dixie and The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Ed and I were both in tears by the end.
I did get a recording of them earlier in the rehearsal singing an Irish song, The Fields of Athenry. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. It was more than worth the extra walk this evening. We ended with almost 23,000 steps, and a giant smile on our faces.
